Fuel System Cleaner - Real World Experience...

I am looking to try a fuel system cleaner on my mom's Astro van. I have read some reviews online, but I am hoping that someone can give me some real world experiences. The Chevron Techron seems to get the best reviews and it is relatively inexpensive at Walmart. The BG 44K gets good reviews, but it would cost me $40 for enough to do one treatment.

So, there are the ones I am considering - please let me know if you have used them and if the results were good:

Chevron Techron Fuel System Cleaner - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Chevron-T...10-oz/16647989

CRC 1 Tank Power Renew (this one is guaranteed) - https://www.autozone.com/fuel-and-en...nup/461562_0_0

Seafoam Engine Additive And Cleaner - https://www.autozone.com/motor-oil-a...ent/597209_0_0

Lucas Upper Cylinder Lubricant - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lucas-Upp...FL-OZ/16777813

Rislone Fuel Additive And Cleaner - https://www.autozone.com/fuel-and-en...ent/429383_0_0

STP Ultra 5 In 1 - https://www.autozone.com/fuel-and-en...ner/455565_0_0

Dura Lube Severe Fuel System Cleaner - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Dura-Lube...16-oz/19887509

BG 44k is what I have used. It only hurts when you buy it.

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Techron for me. Only problem is, it can't clean clogged ports. It only cleans what it can flow through.

Chevron Techron and Redline SI-1 cleaners are the only two I trusted, in my ZR-1 Corvette's fuel system. Both are detergent-based, not solvent-based, and won't damage the injectors.
